An Elf Tries to Save Santa’s Home
I’ll do anything to raise awareness about climate change, and that includes dressing like an elf and standing around in superconductor-cold during my town’s largest holiday event and accosting citizens who are just trying to have a good time.
The activity also included having lots of pictures taken with children and trying to explain to them a) what climate change is; and b) that I’m a real elf. I was more successful in the first endeavor since my ears kept almost falling off.
A surprise: nobody tried to argue, even though I was loud. The prospect of heckling an elf may have been too ridiculous. It’s good that nobody did because I had a bunch of pre-prepared and (I daresay) cutting elf-comebacks for anyone who tried. I was ready to go all Rodney Dangerelf.
I wonder: when the arctic is gone in a couple of decades, where will parents tell their children Santa Claus lives? On a boat?
For those interested, here’s the sign I was brandishing about (if you’d like to brandish the same sign at some future event email me):
